NGC 5c 1904 Liberty Nickel on Haiti 5 Centimes Planchet VF-35


Wrong planchet error, struck on a Haiti 5 Centimes Planchet, with a weight of 3.0 grams and nickel metal. The coin is not attributed by NGC as being on this country's planchet, but there is no question it is. The planchet was produced by the Scovill Manufacturing Company for that country in 1904, but at the same time it was also producing v-nickel planchets for the Philadelphia Mint. This Haitian planchet doubtless was accidentally mixed into the v-nickel planchets being sent to Philadelphia, which is how it ended up getting struck by v-nickel dies. A scarce wrong planchet error.
